Things Are Looking Up , Oh Finally.

Ok, so the title of this post is a slight exaggeration, but nonetheless.

If you have paid attention to any of my previous posts or spoken to me in the last 2 months, you may have gathered I have not been happy. In particular with my job. Well, I haven’t documented so much recently, but my job has gotten worse. I am no getting shouted at at the beginning of every shift. No matter how much work I do on my 8 hour shifts, it’s not enough apparently. And I’m being told one thing by my boss and another by my supervisor and so of course am always in the wrong.

Well, recently (very recently) my boyfriend started a new chef job at a restaurant an old friend of his has just bought, and I have been offered a waitress position there. Now, yes, I do no longer enjoy waitressing as much as i used to, but I am hoping being able to work with people who I like again will give me back my motivation. Besides, if all goes well on my trial shift and this job becomes official, I will not only be working with my boyfriend, and a friend of mine in a better place of work, where I am not tormented everyday (hopefully) but I will also be taking home an extra £120 a month in wages, which will be much needed when I buy the car that will get me to my new job. And as this new restaurant is pretty swish I could be earning a further £50 a week, in tips (of course that is not definite, but it IS food for thought)

And yes I know money isn’t everything, and working with my boyfriend could be difficult (although we HAVE done it before perfectly fine) I truly think I could be ok in this job once I’m given my training, so long as I don’t have to face my current boss ever again.

19 Reasons To Tell Someone You Love Them

Thought Catalog

1. The best part of being with someone you care about is knowing that they know how important they really are.

2. There is no reason to be afraid of loving someone, because the worst thing you can face is rejection, which is nothing compared to being the kind of person who never tells anyone how they really feel.

3. Even when someone rejects you, you are still gaining something from being a more compassionate, open, and honest person.

4. We all know how it feels when you are waiting for someone to tell you — there is no reason to inflict that torture on someone else.

5. There is no such thing as gender norms, anyone can say that they love someone first, and it doesn’t make you “a pussy” or “too manly” for not following the right order.

6. If someone is making you happy enough to feel…

6 Things You Should Never Do In A Relationship

Thought Catalog

1. Make them feel bad about a normal body function.

If that girl lets out an unexpected little toot in your bed when you two are just moments post-lovemaking, loud enough for all to hear and clear enough to render a denial impossible, you lighten that god damn mood like the hero you are. You laugh, you tell her it was cute, you use every weapon in your “It’s okay, I still find you beautiful and wonderful” arsenal because that girl is currently dying a thousand tiny, papercut deaths inside at the prospect that this person she is really into has just been made stinkily aware of the fact that she is a real human being. Don’t be the person who makes her feel even more awkward or uncomfortable or ashamed over something that happens to everyone. Everyone poops and burps and farts and bleeds and gets all sick and…

Thoughts On Testing Positive For An Excruciating Case Of Herpes

Thought Catalog

The word herpes sounds funny. Say the phrase “genital herpes” to yourself three times and tell me it doesn’t make you want to laugh. Herpes herpes herpes. It almost doesn’t even sound like a medical condition – medical conditions aren’t supposed to sound funny. The word cancer doesn’t make you want to laugh. I suppose it helps that herpes doesn’t kill anyone.

When the doctor came back into the room and told me she was testing me for herpes, that was my train of thought. She handed me a pamphlet and asked if I had any questions. I said no, thanked her, climbed down from the crinkly paper seat and calmly left. I was in shock, and all I could think about was how funny the word herpes sounded. That and the severe shots…

21 Things You Don’t Miss Until They’re Gone

Thought Catalog

1. Having friends who text you to find out how you’re doing when you’re going through a really difficult relationship moment. (You know, the texts you see while waiting for “your person” to text you, the ones that make you throw your phone across the room and hate your friends for trying to talk to you.)

2. The nights where you stay up late with your hometown friends, doing the same thing you always do, drinking beer and hanging out in the same places. The nights where you turn to each other and talk about how you can’t wait to grow up, and get out, and forget about this boring town.

3. Having grandparents who call you to find out what you’re doing, and are super interested even when absolutely nothing interesting is happening, who are incredibly excited just to be having you on the phone for a while.

I Am So Lost.

I just text my half asleep boyfriend and told him I don’t love him anymore, and now I can’t stop crying. I don’t know if this maybe means I do actually love him or whether I’m just mourning the two years we’ve had together.

He hasn’t replied, and if he does at all, it won’t be till tomorrow.

So for now, I feel like I’m in limbo. I don’t know what me might say or where this could leave us, but my god I cannot stop crying.
